The Infographics Projects

Infographics Projects aspires to present concisely the most prominent economic developments appropriately designed for social media and to achieve a broad understanding of complex economic issues. This is accomplished by promoting noteworthy research and data on the Economy of the European Union and of the Euro Area, and the placement of Greece in these. With the Infographics Projects, the contemporary economic reality emerges with the help of data from reliable sources, and by illustrating them with graphs. The Infographics Projects consists of individual Projects that are separated into issues. By having multiple Projects, it is aimed to a statistical representation of various contemporary economic issues and to highlight the importance of the cooperation of the economic science with other scientific disciplines, such as the social, the technological, and the environmental. The issues are being published on a weekly basis at Get Involved social media, and in each project, there are from3 up to 6 issues. Finally, upon completion of the publication of the overall issues of a Project, a study with the findings of the research is published. The resulting study is solely based on the used data and no personal views, either of the authors or of the team of Get Involved, are expressed at any point.

Economics of Equality

The current initiative by Get Involved -which is called infographics project- aims to present -mainly by the use of graphs- studies on various economic and social indicators, which show the course of Greece and other EU member states in regards to these indicators and explain the economic and social significance of the results and changes of the aforementioned indicators.

The specific research of the Infographics Project (Economics of Equality) focuses on the study and analysis of data related to employment and educational equality recorded in Greece and other EU member states from the period between 2014 – 2020, for people of different gender, age, and mental or physical characteristics. The aim of the current research is a comparative study of the employment, educational and social integration rates of people who differ in terms of gender, age group, and mental or physical characteristics both domestically and at European level. The findings of the studies shed light on further actions that need to be taken so that parameters such as gender, age, and different mental and physical condition are not hindered or excluded from the employment and educational field of their general integration into the modern international society.
